  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2009 July #1
    "Stranger danger" is a concept unfamiliar to 13-year-old Henry, who befriends an injured man during one of his and his agoraphobic mother's rare shopping excursions in town—with disastrous results for all. To be fair, neither mother nor son have much worldly experience, thanks to Adele's emotional fragility following her divorce. Yet their willingness to assist a strange man has less to do with their collective lack of judgment than it does with Frank's infectious charm, a quality that will escalate over the coming days as the escaped convict and murderer holds the pair hostage in their own home. With remarkable ease, Adele falls in love with Frank. As she helps him plan a second escape to Canada, Henry fears losing the little stability he has ever known. Told from Henry's point of view, Maynard's inventive coming-of-age tale indelibly captures the anxiety and confusion inherent in adolescence, while the addition of a menacing element of suspense makes this emotionally fraught journey that much more harrowing.
